If you've been paying attention online, you might hear a lot of noise being made about something called web3... And NFTs... Not to mention cryptocurrencies. We tried our level best to make sense of them but decided this was too heavy a topic to leave to the feeble minds hosting the podcast, so we decided to bring on an expert - Ekalavya Bhattacharya. Eka is an entrepreneur in the web3 space, and also runs a fashion tech company. In the past, he's been heavily involved with various web ventures - from making money off squatted email IDs in school (!) to being a part of high-growth early internet companies like Contests2Win, Zapak, and heading the digital wing of MTV India. Chuck calls him one of the smartest people he knows. Recently, he's forayed into the web3 space, and he's got a lot to talk about it.Join us for this 2-part episode where we speak with Eka about the changing landscape of the internet, how it's evolved, what NFTs / web3 really means, and what the future holds. It gets geeky, so strap in!Find Eka at:https://www.instagram.com/ekalavya/https://twitter.com/ekalavyabhttps://www.instagram.com/FusedBulbMedia/Add one part news, one part bad jokes, one part Wikipedia research, one part cult references from spending too much time on the internet, one part Wodehouse quotes, and one part quality puns, and you get Simblified.A weekly podcast to help you appear smarter, to an audience that knows no less!

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!! That title really says it all.  This is a weird one.  The story is lovely, but the setup is unconventional.  If you're a new listener, maybe start somewhere else. If you listen anyway, the first listener to message us having figured out what is different about this week wins 150 points and a brand new shiny Thank You from us! This week, the story comes from P. G. Wodehouse.  For fun facts about this funny man, check out Episode 33, Dynamite of the Soul. And on that note, I'm going to let you get to it.  Short and simple.  This week's story, "Jeeves and the Hard Boiled Egg" was published in the Saturday Evening Post in the United States on 3 March 1917, and in The Strand Magazine in the United Kingdom in August 1917. The story was also included in the 1925 collection Carry On, Jeeves. So sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.

38: Literary Drinking: Alcohol in the Lives and Work of Writers

Booze as muse or a sure road to ruin? In this month's episode, William Palmer – author of In Love with Hell: Drink in the Lives and Work of Eleven Writers – and Henry Jeffreys – author of Empire of Booze and The Cocktail Dictionary – join the Slightly Foxed team to mull over why alcohol is such an enduring feature in literature.  From the omnipresence of cocktails in John Cheever's short stories and ritual aperitifs in Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels to Mr Picksniff falling into Mrs Todger's fireplace in Martin Chuzzlewit and P. G. Wodehouse's hangover remedies for booze-soaked Bertie Wooster, drinks are social signifiers in fiction. Charles Dickens was fond of sherry cobblers and Jean Rhys knocked back Pernod in Paris, while Malcolm Lowry was a dipsomaniac and Flann O'Brien dreamed up alcoholic ink for the Irish Times, rendering readers drunk from fumes. We ask why gin denotes despair and port is always jovial, and question whether hitting the bottle helps or hinders the creative process in writers. Following a convivial sherry, we're whisked away on a wet-your-whistle-stop tour of drinking dens with our friends at London Literary Tours, barrelling from bars propped up by Oscar Wilde to the follies of Dylan Thomas at Soho's French House via Ian Fleming's Vesper cocktail at Dukes. And we finish with a final round of reading recommendations, visiting a whisky distillery in Pakistan in Lawrence Osbourne's The Wet and the Dry, enjoying Happy Hour with Marlowe Granados and stopping for a nightcap at Kingsley Amis's ghostly local The Green Man.

London is one of the most popular cities to visit - great restaurants, bars, hotels, but it wasn't always that way. One man's vision changed everything when he opened a hotel that would become one of the most influential in the world. Our guest today introduces us to that man. For those of you who haven't guessed already, that hotel is the Savoy in London, and that man is Richard D'Oyly Carte. Sponsored by Bulleit Bourbon and Kentucky Tourism, our guest Olivia Williams introduces us to the three generations of the D'Oyly Carte family who pioneered the luxury hotel and the modern theatre, propelled Gilbert and Sullivan to lasting stardom, inspired a P. G. Wodehouse series, and popularised early jazz, electric lights, and Art Deco. Olivia Williams is a journalist and author. She graduated with a master's degree in modern history from Oxford University, and in her final year, she won a Rupert Murdoch student scholarship. She wrote her first book, Gin Glorious Gin: How Mother's Ruin Became the Spirit of London, in 2014. Her second book, The Secret Life of the Savoy, was published in 2020. Olivia has been a guest on Radio 4, Bloomsberg, Sky Arts, and CBS News and has often contributed to The Economist, Country Life, House & Garden, and the Evening Standard. Now it's time to go inside the Savoy. Our cocktail of the week is the Hanky Panky, a Savoy invention. The Hanky Panky was Ada Coleman's most famous cocktail.  It was created for the actor-manager Sir Charles Hawtrey in the 1910s, who staggered into the American Bar one evening and begged “Coley” for some sort of pick-me-up.  She made him a drink. He downed it pretty quickly and staggered out again, presumably much refreshed.  The following evening he returned to the American Bar and asked Coley to knock out “some more of that hanky panky.”  So she did. It's remained a popular cocktail ever since! INGREDIENTS  1 ½ oz Gin 1 ½ oz Sweet Vermouth 2 Dashes Fernet-Branca Orange Twist METHOD Combine the gin, sweet vermouth, and Fernet-Branca in a mixing glass filled with ice Stir until chilled Strain into a cocktail glass Add an orange twist  You'll find this recipe and all the cocktails of the week at alushlifemanual.com, where you'll also find all the ingredients in our shop. ----- Become a supporter of A Lush Life Manual for as little as $5 - all you have to do is go to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/lushlife (buymeacoffee.com/lushlife).

English-Australian narrator Rupert Degas has a grand time giving voice to Saki's many tales of blustering, tyrannical aunts; mischievous children; and that most important of all English inventions—the twit. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile's Alan Minskoff discuss the stories of Saki (Hector Hugh Munro, 1870-1916), whose work is especially fun on audio. Degas reads the stories well—few do better at satirizing the foibles and follies of the upper classes. Listen closely, and you'll hear why everyone from P.G. Wodehouse to Mony Python owes a huge debt to this Edwardian comic genius. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile's website. Published by Naxos AudioBooks.

With his new book, Shakespearean: On Life and Language in Times of Disruption (Pegasus Books), author & literary editor Robert McCrum uses Shakespeare's plays, poems, life and history to examine how Shakespeare is a mirror of human experience, and why his lines continue to resonate 400+ years after his death. We talk about Robert's history with the plays (beginning with his role as First Fairy in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the age of 13) and the 2017 performance of Julius Caesar in Central Park that inspired the book, the ways in which the Plays and the Sonnets complement each other, and how those works influence our understanding of the self and self-consciousness. We also get into the vicissitudes of literary reputation, the way Shakespearean fits as the capstone of Robert's Disruption Trilogy, along with My Year Off and Every Third Thought, the first play Robert's Shakespeare Club plans to see post-pandemic, the snobbery that drives Shakespeare denialism, how America became Shakespearean, and the urban myth that Shakespeare wrote King Lear during lockdown, as well as the ways plague influenced Shakespeare's entire career. Plus: where I should begin with Wodehouse, what prompted Robert to finally finish Proust (and then re-read him), and the nightmare of interviewing Philip Roth! • More info at our site • Support The Virtual Memories Show via Patreon or Paypal
